Re: Playing the cymbals softer than the drums.

Watch how Steve Jordan holds the sticks. He's choked way up on his right hand while way down on the butt end with his left.

Re: Endings

Like my friend Derrick Martin ;-)

69201

For myself, I like variety. Sometimes a short cymbal wash, sometimes a big showoff thing. Slow, fast (at least as fast as I can go smoothly which...

Re: Things guitarist tell drummers to do...

A common production trick before computers and drum machines was to splice a loop of tape a couple of bars long and just let it run in a machine so there was a steady time track. Then fills could be...

Re: I'm a jaded music industry guy

Sounds like BBs in a soda can to me. Whatever happened to the sound of a "snare"?

Re: Smaller Drums In Front Of The Kick Drum???

I've had one experience with a SubKick and wasn't impressed. Did one of those engineering school recording sessions at a proper studio where they bring in students and you get a free recording out...

Re: The origin of the term "Gospel Chops"

You can hear Chris here with someone who is very accurate. Chris definitely moves it around a bit more. https://youtu.be/4RS5RsSPssw

Re: Blues jam session ... play simple - receive big applause

Where I live there is a strong traditional blues community. Phil Rudd or Kenny Aranoff drumming would be as frowned upon as someone trying to channel Bruford. The parallel triplet thing is a...

Re: How to stop playing slightly ahead of the beat?

I think that playing ahead or behind the beat is a misnomer. That would be either rushing or dragging. Instead I think in terms of displacement within the measure. e.g. pulling the 4 behind for an...

Re: Blues jam session ... play simple - receive big applause

It's not so much "play simple" as it is hold the groove. Any fills or embellishments that disrupt the groove will be frowned on. Listen to accomplished blues drummers and they are doing lots of...

Re: Snare sound with Hot Rods?

I have a fairly loosely tuned Acrolite that sounds okay with rods. Loose batter, loose reso, loose snares.

After playing a couple coffee shop gigs with Vic Firth KidSticks, I tried cutting down...

Re: DW performance series 12x14 floor tom

I used to have a Cx maple kit with a 12x14. I actually liked this drum better than the square 14x14 Renown I replaced it with. The shorter drum had a more controlled sustain. With the square one,...

Re: tom mounts on cymbal stands

For a long time I carried around really heavy duty cymbal stands like DW9000 because I was concerned about things hanging off them. Now I have my rack tom hanging off a single braced Yamaha stand...

Re: What kit do you use?

You never know. The drummer in my old corporate band was given a kit by his college music director. It was a '70s Ludwig butcher block kit that was missing a few parts and languishing in a closet...

Re: Playing Live With a Metronome

I've played with sequenced tracks and have friends who do the same. Guess how those parts got put into the backing tracks? I played them. I made the music. How I phrased those tracks and what I...

Re: Playing Live With a Metronome

Re: I must be an anachronism

I think what you're after is the RIAA equalization curve. There was an RCA Orthorphonic curve, a NAB curve and others. Gear from the 50's and 60's often had selector switches for whoever's records...

Re: Any Rogers experts here care to take a look at this ad?

I sold Rogers drums in '77. I don't remember factory single headed versions. All the ones we stocked were normal double headed drums. Loud, and solid hardware for the time.

Re: Stevie Wonder - Superstition

While nobody's going to play it exactly like the record, it bugs me to death when folks get all wild and syncopated with it. Totally loses the groove and essence of the song without the steady 4 and...

Re: Playing Someone Else's Kit

If I don't know the other player or how his kit will be set up, I'll bring my throne, snare with stand and hats with stand. Usually some cymbals as well in case they have really odd tastes like...

Re: Stevie Wonder - Superstition

Daymn, now I'm going to have to learn that song all over again. I always thought it was just a straight 4 on the kick with the loose hi-hat stuff over it. Trademark Stevie looseness. But somehow...

Re: But What To Wear?

Larry, be careful of shiny tight weave fabrics that don't breathe.

Back in the late '70s the cabaret/show band I played with decided to snazz it up for NYE. We had these motorcycle jackets made...

Re: But What To Wear?

Re: Felt vs plastic

I wish PureSound hadn't discontinued their beaters. I've had the felt come off of mine and had to glue it back on. So far so good. But I'd like to have a spare or two. The shape of the surface...

Re: Antiquing / Distressing drums and hardware

Most of the guitar "relicing" of hardware is done with fairly aggressive acids to promote corrosion. Which has to be neutralized very thoroughly or you will have problems down the road. Also,...

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

The one thing I don't see which I do "hate" is how they mark up the ride cymbal. I dislike hosting a jam night and finding all these white marks all over my prized ride. I guess I need something...
